Ubuntu :: Cannot Rotate Cube With Mouse Wheel Since 9.10 Upgrade
Jan 7, 2010
Everything worked fine with Jaunty 9.04, but I haven't had any luck getting the "cube" to rotate using the mouse wheel since I upgraded to Karmic 9.10. The other ways to rotate the cube still work with karmic. Note that I upgraded from jaunty to karmic...not a clean install. Viewport switcher and rotate cube are both enabled.
I just switched from Jaunty to Karmic, and in the process of setting up desktop effects, I'm having a hard time with configuring the rotate cube compiz effect. Before, I was able to scroll on the desktop (ie, not over a window/application) to spin the cube to the next face. Now, it seems that I either have to use keyboard shortcuts or lose the ability to scroll in applications.
I've tried enabling the mouse scrolling to button 4/button 5 a la this post, but this doesn't fix the problem. This is one of the few desktop effects that really made a difference in terms of convenience, so I'd really like to be able to fix this setting.
I've recently enabled the fun stuff with compiz but I've run into a sort of problem... I want 9 desktops in a 3x3 grid (yeah, weird I know) but if I'm using the cube I can only rotate left and right... which is pretty weak sauce. Is there any way to (preferred) have desktops on the top and bottom of the cube and be able to bind a key combo to rotate up and down (ctrl-alt-up/down)? I *could* put 9 desktops in a row, but I really don't like that solution - it takes too many flips to make it from one desktop to another.
Compiz is all full of beautiful (especially burning the windows on close)
I use the hotkey ctrl+alt+left click in Blender to zoom object... So I didn't want Compiz to use the same key to move around the cube. I changed a setting in window move, and either the old or the new key works. New is alt+1 but it does nothing, same with ctrl+alt+left click. Also, I want the move around hotkey to be something like super+m or ctrl+m etc.
Just installed 11.04 (Natty). Graphics card is Radeon 9200When I enable Cube in the compizconfig settings manager and rotate the cube, the cube goes almost black. This happens with both drag and keyboard rotate. The background is fine. Everything is defaults and no other effects are enabled.Also, the entire screen goes dark when "opacity when not rotating" is set to anything but 100%.This worked fine with with my previous version 8.04, though I think it used a proprietary driver.Questions:Should I be using a proprietary driver this card? Apparently you have to install a long list of packages first: XFree86-Mesa-libGL libstdc++ libgcc XFree86-libs fontconfig expat freetype zlib
I used OpenSUSE today and in one of the options for Rotate Cube (in compiz) was something that let me adjust to what angle I could allow the cube to go up and down. If I set it to 360 degrees, I was able to rotate the cube in any which direction I pleased. Can I do this on Ubuntu?
Here's a strange compiz effect - odd visual echo when you rotate the cube. I kept my /home partition from the Lucid beta testing and compiz seems to have problems with it - looks like I will have to do a complete format and reinstall to solve this. I already purged and reinstalled compiz and anything I could find associated with it. Anyone else suffering from a buggy compiz? The strange thing is - this only occurs 1 out of 10 boots???
I was just wondering about something. I have linked the middle click to initiate the cube rotation and it works perfectly except when I have the cursor on firefox. Then it just acts like I middleclicked in firefox itself. Personally I like this behaviour but was wondering why it is JUST firefox that has it. Would be great if I could achieve the same in Blender
I have been facing this inconvenience since the first days of my life in Ubuntu, but never thought of any solution to it. Today, while reading a long page of icle in Mozilla Firefox, I badly felt the necessity of scrolling down and up using my mouse's wheel. But it isn't activated by default. I've heard that there is some technique to get this working
I just installed Ubuntu for the first time in a couple of years, and I'm having a problem with my mouse wheel scrolling about a half a page with every click of the mouse wheel. I never had that trouble in the past.In Firefox, I changed the correct settings inmousewheel.withnokey so that it should only scroll one line and I set the option to use the system settings to false. It still scrolls about a half a page at a time.
It's not just Firefox, it's everything, including LibreOffice, and everything else that uses a scroll wheel. I have installed Xubuntu-Desktop and also Kubuntu-Desktop. I noticed in Unity and Xfce, there are no settings for how many lines the mouse wheel scrolls. In KDE, there actually is a setting. I set it to one line, and it didn't change anything. I opened up a document in LibreOffice, and it still scrolls almost a whole page with one click of the wheel. Firefox still scrolls about a half a page.
I just finished installing 10.04. When I use the mouse wheel to scroll up, Firefox loads previous pages in my history. I had the same problem in 9.10. I've searched through the net looking for solutions. Most solutions talk about adjusting mousewheel.withnokey options. However, everything I try doesn't stop it from loading previous pages when using the mouse wheel to scroll up. My current settings are as follows:
When I originally installed 10.04 on a new machine, I was using a temporary PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse. The mouse was a simple two-button mouse. This worked fine. Now, I have moved my Microsoft PS/2 scroll wheel mouse from my previous computer to the new machine, but the scroll wheel does not work. How do I make it work?
I had hoped that Ubuntu would detect my different (new) hardware and configure it for me, but it did not. Googling leads me to xinput, but I can't figure out what to do with that and it indicates it is for 'on the fly' configuration. I want it to be permanently configured. Is there some way to invoke the installation tool again to reinstall the mouse?
I just installed kubuntu 9.10 on my new PC (HP Pavillion). I'm new to ubuntu, I had some experience before with mandriva.Most things work properly but there is a strange problem with the mouse (USB), and more precisely with that little wheel which stands between the two buttons. Turning it when the pointer is on some web page (using firefox) I expect the page to scroll. So I turn the wheel in one direction and the page scroll up. Good!I tried with other programs (konqueror, kmail)... and still the same happens, I can only scroll to the top.
I have recently acquired "3RVX" for my windows gaming rig and have fallen in love with the fast, customizable volume adjustment offered by holding the windows key (or "super") and rolling the mouse wheel.
I'm working with Ubuntu 10.04 x64 + Asus 1201N + Media-Tech MD1083 RELOADED bluetooth mouse. Gnome Bluetooth Applet has setup mouse perfectly except scrolling. Even back&forward buttons seem to work fine but the scroll wheel does not work at all.
In "xev" I can see that scrolling does not produce any events.
My mouse wheel stopped working after a package manager update.I'm still running 8.04 (yeah, yeah, I know, will be updating soon). I can't seem to find a "package manager update history" so I can see what got updated when I did that just today (changes can't be more than 24h old).I tried rebooting/cold boot just in case.I check xorg.cfg, but it hasn't changed since march of 2008, so I figure nothing overrode the config.
Upgraded to 10.04, fresh install. Now I can't change to a new song or go back to the previous one by using the mouse wheel over the rhythmbox icon in the task bar like I could in the previous release. I couldn't find an option for it in the plugins or preferences neither. Is there a way to get this back?
I use an MS mouse/keyboard combo model 6000 (ver. 2) and for the most part they work great, that is except for a problem with the mouse wheel scrolling through the desktops if the cursor is on a desktop.If the cursor is in/on a window it scrolls through the window as normal.t also scrolls through the desktops if I "side click" the mouse wheel as well. I've run sax2 and the mouse moduledoesn't even appear but my Wacom tablet settings do. Very perplexing to say the least.
In Linux or Mac OS X, every window I hover over registers mouse wheel events without being the focused window. For instance I can have two windows open at the same time and scroll in each one of them without clicking either of them first.Can this behaviour somehow be translated to Windows? Is there a tool or a hidden preference that I can set?
In Kwrite,Kate or KDE itself ,my USB 5 Button Mouse works fine, But in Dolphin, Chrome or Konqueror ,the "Mouse wheel scolls by..." in "system settings" didn't work, Dolphin scolls by itself, not 1 line or two lines...I'm eagering to know why these happend and if there are some way to force the mouse scoll lines
How do i make VLC jump forward or back using the mouse wheel regardless of where i have the mouse cursor in the window? I went to preferences and changed the hotkey to 'short forward jump' to mouse wheel forward, but nothing seems to happen when i press the forward button.
